Wordman - Gibson J-45

Whoops! The hammer has already fallen on that lovely piece. And someone paid $112.50 for it!

Martin is up to $43K.


Final price was $63,000. Interesting note - the guitar’s seller was Cal Turner, Jr, Founder and former CEO of Dollar General Stores.


Yeah, I am totally swamped at work - in a good way, but there ya go. Haven’t been able to visit the Dope nearly enough, let alone track this auction.

So, yeah - for a smaller, local auction, that’s a relatively great price - $70,000 or so given various fees and such. The folks over on the Vintage Corner thought someone got a good deal. Fun.
